The Caribbean island of Dominica is twenty-nine miles long and sixteen miles wide. Approximately 73,000 people make this island their home. Its natural beauty lends itself to hiking, and its waters are as equally inviting as its lands. Resorts here aren’t the type you would find on many of the other Caribbean islands, and once you are in Dominica you will probably decide that is a positive. Here are the top resorts in Dominica.
With a mere five rooms, Formerly Habitation Chabert – Now Silks Hotel is easily one of the top resorts in Dominica. Ideally, if you are arriving on Dominica as a group, you can rent the entire house, which is a 17th Century mansion and former rum-distillery. Their restaurant serves deliciously authentic French cuisine, and you can order a car and driver, as well as a cook, as a guest of this house. There will be no televisions in your room, no telephones as well, which only adds to the undeniably romantic Silks Hotel experience.
The Picard Beach Cottages offers eighteen one-bedroom cottages on a six-acre coconut plantation, situated on a long gray sand beach. The grounds are lush and beautiful and meticulously maintained. The rooms are comfortable and cozy. The service is friendly, and the restaurant next door, Le Flambeau Restaurant, serves delicious creole food in a wonderfully casual setting.

With thirty-five cottages situated on fifty-five acres of Dominica’s otherwise undeveloped southeast, the Jungle Bay Resort and Spa easily qualifies as one of the island’s top resorts.

Bring your best hiking shoes, because this resort begins at sea level and rises up to a thousand feet. The resort also features a fabulous restaurant, two bars, a swimming pool, fitness classes, a spa, a game room, and a shop. Many of the rooms boast truly spectacular views.
